Samsung’s competitor to the new Moto E is the 64-bit Galaxy Win 2

Samsung has launched a new smartphone called the Galaxy Win 2 which offers 64-bit processing power with other decent features at an affordable price. The handset has been revealed in Brazil and it will most likely get a global release in the coming months.

The Samsung Galaxy Win 2 is basically the successor to the original Win handset which was launched back in April of 2013. It is quite similar to the Moto E where hardware is concerned. The phone offers a 4.5-inch display, albeit with a measly WVGA resolution and there’s Android 4.4 KitKat powering things up. You of course, get the TouchWiz UI along with various enhancements from the company.

But what really makes the Samsung device a nice pick is that it’s promised to get an update to Lollipop, later this year though. The company has gone with a 1.2GHz quad core Snapdragon 410 processor which is 64-bit enabled and you get dual SIM card slots as well.
